Circa 1915

About

Signed lower right, 'Henry Ottmann' (French, 1877-1927) and painted circa 1915. Born in 1877 in the Loire Valley, Henri Ottmann first exhibited in the Salon de la Libre Esthétique in Brussels in 1904 and, beginning in 1905, at the Salon d’Automne, the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts and the Salon des Tuileries. Benezit, which also gives a signature sample, calls Ottmann “…a delicate expressionist colorist filled with sensitivity…” Ottmann’s cityscapes of Paris, still-lives and figural works are all composed with a subtle elegance and painted in a dramatic, yet refined, palette. Henri Ottmann’s work is held in the permanent collections of numerous national museums including the Musée du Luxembourg (Paris), La Courtisane Endormie; and the Musée d'Art Moderne de la ville (Paris), Le Pont de Meulan. Benezit further observes “…(Ottmann) became, and remains, a charming painter of women. It is in his nudes that he finds his most perfect expression.” We are pleased to offer this elegant figural work which shows the artist at the height of his relaxed and expressive power. Framed Dimensions: 20¾ x 16¾ x 1 Inches Reference: Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs, Vol. 10, p. 447; Thieme-Becker, Allgemeines Lexikon der Bildenden Kunstler, Vol. 26, p. 90; Davenport’s Art Reference Guide, 2007/8 Edition, p. 1780; et al.
